Travel Information


From the airport, a convenient and relatively inexpensive way to reach your hotel or the conference room is by taxi (about AU$ 20).

By train is not much cheaper (about AU$12); but if you arrive on Monday morning during rush hour and intend to go straight to the conference room, it might be faster: The conference room is about 15-20 minutes on foot from Redfern Station (there is no bus stand or taxi stand there).

For more information on public transport, see and the Transport Infoline website (which has a Trip Planner and Timetables).


The conference venue is the Darlington Centre Conference Room 1 (R15 on the Campus Map) at the University of Sydney ("Darlington Campus" on the Overview Map), very close to the City Road entrance.
Public Transport:
The Centre is walking distance (5-10mins) from Redfern train station. Alternatively, the 422, 423, 426, and 428 bus services to and from the City stop on City Road close to the Centre.

September is the beginning of spring in Sydney. Days will in general be sunny but possible cool, with maximum temperatures between 12 and 17 degrees Celsius; it might rain as well. At night, it will get quite cold; expect around 7 degrees Celsius.
You will need a warm pullover, a jacket and maybe a raincoat or an umbrella. The sunlight can be very bright, so you might want to bring sunglasses as well.
